Man City's Aguero gets four-match ban for violent conduct


Pep Guardiola says Sergio Aguero must improve his discipline, with the striker set to be banned for Manchester City's next four matches.

City's 3-1 home defeat to Chelsea ended in chaotic scenes this weekend as the Blues had two players sent off.

Aguero was shown a straight red card for his stoppage-time foul on David Luiz, which sparked a brawl that also resulted in a red card for Fernandinho on Saturday. Agüero, who had escaped censure for a two-footed lunge on Luiz during City's FA Cup semi-final win against Chelsea in April 2013, had been body-checked by the defender in the first half when about to race clear, an infringement that went unpunished by Taylor. "This is not part of the handsome football", said Luiz.

The majority of the players on the pitch were involved in the scuffle, with Nathaniel Chalobah's aggressive initial push on Aguero responsible for sending City players over the edge. When you play bad you can try to play well. "It is normal in football - when you win you (are) happy, when you lose you (are) sad".

The fallout from that late melee hasn't been favourable for either club, with both set to face disciplinary action by the FA for failing to control their players. "Never in my life (have I criticised referees)". "It's a pity it finished like that and I apologise for what happened". The hosts spurned a host of chances, most notably when Kevin De Bruyne hit the bar from five yards out with the goal open. Remarkably, the goals from Diego Costa, Willian and Eden Hazard all beat the Chilean by finding exactly the same spot in the net, low to the goalkeeper's right.

It was Chelsea's eighth consecutive victory in the Premier League and a huge statement coming away at one of their main title rivals.

Looking purely at the statistics, this was a game that Pep Guardiola's men should have won. Every single match is hard.

Fabregas, 29, has seen limited playing time at Stamford Bridge this term with manager Antonio Conte content to utilize the services of N'Golo Kante and Nemanja Matic at the heart of the midfield.

He said: "City are a good team".

"I don't think Aguero's challenge is intentional".
